D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

L’Ome e lo Gran listen the Midi file for this traditional music tune score of this traditional tune
(The Man and the Wheat) (The Man and the Corn)
Traditional song from Sospel, County of Nice.

The theme of the man shared between the daughter and the mother is also encountered exactly in La Fillo amé la maire.

1st verse
Don anem piantar lo mai ? (twice)
Sus la poarta de ma bella ;
Bala, cima dau mai.
 Where are we going to plant the May (1)? (twice)
In front of the door of my belle;
Let dance, top of the May.

Chorus
E bala, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, la, li, la, la. (twice)
L’autre jorn, dambe ma maire
Sen anas missonar de gran.
Aven trovà un toc d’ome
Sota ’na garba de gran.
 And dance, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, la, li, la, la. (twice)
The other day, with my mother
We went to harvest wheat.
We found a scrap of a man
Under a sheaf of corn.

2nd verse
E contenta la Julieta,
E content lo pescaor.
E lo pescaor que pesca
Ne pescava lo miéu aneu.
 She is pleased, Juliet,
He is happy, the angler.
And the angler fishing
Fished my ring (2).

Chorus
E bala, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, la, li, la, la. (twice)
Me ma maire la pu vielha
N’en volìa una mitan.
Sen anas da mossù lo juge
E lo juge en a juja.
 And dance, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, li, la, la, li, la, la. (twice)
But my mother, the oldiest,
Wanted half [of him].
We went to Mr judge
And the judge judged.

Coda
A la jove li ven l’ome,
A la vielha li ven lo gran.
N’estima un toc d’ome
Que tres cent sestié de gran.
 To the young is due the man,
To the old is due the wheat.
I appreciate [more] a scrap of a man
Than three hundred measures of corn.

1. See May songs.
2. The metaphor seems to be evident...
